The beach has a magical atmosphere that instantly relaxes us and makes us happy. Maybe it’s the wind, maybe it’s the sun or the smell of the sea … if only we could bring these elements into our home! The next best thing to actually being at the beach, soaking it all in, is turning your living space into a coastal fairytale! If you are yearning for the beach, these coastal living rooms will offer some much-needed inspiration!
The feeling that beige captures so well is one of comfort and security that we all yearn for within our homes. Emphasise that feeling by adding some wooden pieces to your neutral living room. A relaxing atmosphere by the fireplace calls for a color palette that knows how to channel tranquility. You could hardly find a better choice than beige. There are plenty of beige hues to play with, from soft cream to dark sand. You can easily layer them within one room and awaken the traditional ambiance. Use the brightest hues of beige to capitalize on the room’s incredible lightness, but balance the scale by framing some wall art in black frames.
You can have a lot of variety within a neutral living room. Choose your furniture pieces in a way that makes each of them a little different, be it by color shade or design! The sofa, armchair and ottoman are all a different hue of beige, making the room beautifully diverse. For a more intricate atmosphere, pick a tone at the darker end of the beige spectrum, almost so similar to light brown that you can add some actual brown pieces to the mix and create a very soft, prestigious interior. Wooden elements are the greatest choice for a beige living room! They bring something delicate and dark to a luscious living space! A harmonious style of light and dark neutral shades instantly creates a lavish living room that has a big factor of comfort and an even bigger factor of luxury.
This living space was styled and shot by Souraya Hassan of BINTI HOME. She is a genius – just look at this color combo! A neutral palette of white and soft shades of grey is combined with turquoise and warm tones of orange to create a ideally balanced composition. The wooden ceiling beams are whitewashed, and that gives the ceiling a light and airy look. Copper and warm wood touches make the interior very inviting. I love the idea of mixing trendy and fashionable items by famous designers and some upcycled classic pieces, like the beautiful buffet painted in blue.
